The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle. Although it is the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice and open water, and for hunting seals, which make up most of its diet. Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time on the sea ice.
Because of expected habitat loss caused by climate change, the polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species.

Since last few years nature photography is a major part of my life and I am loving it but let me make it clear that this is my love not my profession. The Big Cats are my favorites, especially the largest in cats The Tiger, my all time sweetheart. Their elegance, the way they play in water, the way they roar, their proud walk.. every thing make me their die hard fan. We all can learn a lot when we spend time in nature and see the life circle of any tangible living thing in this beautiful world. I am sure this will help anyone to become a better person who understands the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the stability of our eco system.
